Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.2%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2007 Traditions Merlot features grapes from 12 different sites in the Columbia Valley. The diversity of terroir allows us to create a more balanced and complete wine. We also included small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petite Sirah in the final blend for supplemental aromatics, texture and complexity.

The nose combines varietal and regional signatures. It delivers forward fruit flavors of ripe plums, cherries, blueberries, mocha, vanilla and caramel. The palate is plush, soft and generous. This is an elegant, balanced, supple Merlot that pairs well with salmon, smoked meats, BBQ, game, ham, stew and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Solid, with a nice refinement to the currant, spice and gentle herb aromas and flavors, finishing against fine tannins. Drink now through 2013."

Learn About Merlot

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
